hi everyone!

besides Vortex Tracker, do anyone here know if it is there any tracker supporting txt-based file formats, by default or by "import/export"?

if there isn't, perhaps wouldn't be a good idea to document, propose and "lobby" such needed and useful format? (which would help interpoerability a lot, at least)

thanks in advance!

Hey d00d! Good to have you back to the site. (me too BTW) I'm more of a modern Tracker type but use OCC-FamiTracker. I've seen the *.VGM-format being used for competitions here (correct me if I'm wrong) but I dig the idea of a "totally cros-compatible/convertable" TX-based format.

With TXT I'm guessing you can also make "hard changes" by editing the raw file for special effects and functions not "supported" by a DAW/tool.

More fine-grain so to speak.

That reminds me I've always wanted to look at a NSF file with notepad plus plus or text pad

the renoise file format is a zip file with xml (a kind of text file) inside. rename one to zip and try opening it
